I properly shouldn't respond to this but sometimes picking a scab off feels good.

Being a veteran of China and Hong Kong (many times in the region)you couldn't be more wrong. Bootlegging wares isn't about having no morals for an area like this. Us being big fat rich Americans have no idea what it is like to peddle bootlegged gear so you can afford to put a bowl of rice on your family's table.

Few things about this you may not be aware of.

A. it's in the entire area of South Asia that does this mainly made in Singapore and shipped around to the rest of the area (not inclusive to China only)

B. We are talking about an area that is amazingly poor and grapples with the reality of finding food everyday. Besides, who are they really ripping off? Big fat lazy rich people who do not need any more money. I think it's justified in a strange manner. I don't think it's all together right but it's understandable why it happens. If you were in thier shoes you would do it too.

C. Bootlegging music is at the bottom of the pile as far as what the area bootlegs. Mostly it's clothing, sports apparel and Holly/Bollywood movies.

D. You want to know how actually bootlegs wares the most and rips off workers. Almost making them slaves and working for next to nothing so you can wear clothes. Look no further than the good ol' USofA. Look into the island of Saipan, (ex-Commonwealth and still protectorate of the US. Look into what some Republicans have done there in the last ten years. Including a disgraced member of Congress. Currently serving a prison term ))))cough(((( Tom Delay. Also sanctioned by our currently seating President and his cronies. (more info at

Anyways the point being the world is not the USA but a far different place with many values. That said I th2nk I just made myself a targ2t for abuse.
